Ian Douglas: In some ways, it reminds me of ''Replacement Killers'', with its triumph of style over substance. I found the director/editor's style irritating at times, while I'm sure some in the art crowd will ooh and aaa! The technique of having the characters change costume and location four or five times during a ten second speech is disconcerting, and you find yourself wondering what the heck the director is up to, instead of concentrating on the story.
